MANHEIM, Pa. Iowa State’s Nick Fanthorpe has been named to the National Wrestling Coaches Association’s All-Academic team for the 2009-10 season, it was announced. Fanthorpe, graduating in community and regional planning, was an NCAA All-American in 2008 and a four-time NCAA qualifier. This is the Cyclone's third selection to the team.

“The student-athletes on this All-Academic Team are a great example of the hard work and dedication that the sport of wrestling teaches these young men,” said NWCA President Jim Beichner.

Fanthorpe was a three-time Academic All-Big 12 first-team honoree. The Naperville, Ill., native was equally impressive on the mat, recording a career record of 100-32.

To qualify for the All-Academic team, a wrestler must have at least a 3.2 cumulative GPA, and either been an NCAA qualifier or won 60 percent of his total schedule and must have competed in at least 60 percent of said schedule. The other way to qualify for the All-Academic team is to have a 3.0 GPA and been an NCAA All-American.
